Comics used to be inaccessible unless you had drawing skill. With iPad apps, it is now very easy for students and instructors to create and share comics, and the application of teaching and learning with comics is growing. Unfortunately, there are less and less free comic creation apps for the iPads, but this studio will introduce you to two possibilities.
Communicate research via a comic: Should Geographers wear specs? http://www2.le.ac.uk/research/festival/meet/2013/geosciences/claire-burwell
- summarize a book chapter
- explain a concept (e.g. corrosion)
- explain or respond to an event
- interpret or summarize a topic
- describe an event
Comic Creator options for this studio
Baiboard is technically not a comic book creation app, but it can be adapted very easily.
